I’m excited to announce that my next major event this year will be Fell’s Point, along with the Pirate’s Magazine Devil’s Dozen festivities ta boot! I haven’t spoken much about the Devil’s Dozen and the Order of Leviathan, largely because I didn’t want to give unfair publicity to some of the contestants while voting was still live. But now that it’s completed, a heartfelt congratulations to all the winners! Especially to my good mates Quicksilver and the MacKay, Seawolf, Captain Sterling, Stynky, Willoughby Caught and Cascabel. As to the rest of you winners, I’m sure you’re perfectly worthy, I just don’t know ya (but I’ll look forward to meeting you at the banquet.)
Editorial Comment: Some of ya need remindin’ – the Order of Leviathan is meant to be a position of honor, and one which you all richly deserve. But it doesn’t come with the title of pirate lord, pirate king, or pirate demi-god, so please stop bandying such terms about, lest ya discover that yer not too big for a swift kick in the seat!
Last I checked, the official Fells Point Privateer Day website was still from 2009, but Pirates Magazine has their own info up to date. And don’t let the name fool ya, either – this is a pirate weekend (not a mere privateer “day”.) Oh, and before any of you non-Leviathan sorts need to ask, yes, these events are open to ALL of us. Some are free, and some (Privateer Soiree, cruises) will have admission fees, but I don’t believe any are exclusive to the Devil’s Dozen winners. Keep checking the linked websites for details, and I hope to see many of you there!
